Paddle Tap is now officially the first and foremost leader in providing Tiki Boat rentals in the Twin Cities area. Operating out of Lake Minnetonka, our floating tiki boats are a one-of-a-kind experience that brings a taste of Polynesia to the waters of MN.
These tours are now offered exclusively through our private tours section. A description of what to expect from these boats and the experience provided is listed below.
A Tiki Boat is a uniquely designed boat that builds off Polynesian and Hawaiian influences. Most notable is the canopy, made of Hawaiian ferns and straw, in addition to bamboo finishing and decorations. The boat shape is either a polygon shape or pontoon structure, and in the middle of the boat is of course the Tiki Bar, typically decorated with bamboo and other decorations. Our Tiki Boat is a pontoon style Tiki boat and has both peddle and motorized options
Our Tiki Boar has its own unique design compared to other boat rental options on Lake Minnetonka and is considered more of a novelty choice. It is completely functional and stable like our other boats and competitor boats on the lake but offers a unique experience that goes beyond a typical boat rental. Not to mention, our Tiki boats stand out much more on the lake than others and make for great photos.
It is not required that you bring Tiki attire or anything Polynesian influenced. We do offer custom themed parties that incorporate the Tiki culture upon request but encourage you to simply enjoy the uniqueness of the boat while on Lake Minnetonka. For any specific needs to questions, feel free to contact us and we’ll get back to your shortly.
